It has finally been confirmed by Codemasters that Portimao, along with the expected car performance update, will hit F1 2021 today.

Following cryptic tweets the announcement wasn’t unexpected, but it is still an awesome piece of news for fans.

Portimao is here

Along with Portimao, there is plenty to come when the patch hits today.

PORTI-WOW: Players can’t wait to head to the Algarve

Aston Martin’s new safety car will be added to the game, leading the pack when required at the following circuits:

  • Bahrain
  • Monaco
  • Canada
  • France
  • Great Britain
  • Netherlands
  • Singapore
  • Russia
  • Japan
  • Australia
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Abu Dhabi

Performance Update

The performance of cars has been updated to bring them inline with real world performance. That should make the midfield even more competitive, but also detach Haas from the back of the field. This has also resulted in a wiping of the Time Trial leaderboards across all platforms, so get ready to go set some new PBs!

FRESH RIDE: The new safety car has been added

The expected handling changes, which will remove unrealistic elements with low-speed cornering, will be coming as soon as the AI retraining is complete.

What about Imola & Jeddah?

Codemasters promised three new tracks, and has delivered one. So what about the rest? Well, we now have a release window for both of them.

Imola is slated for release in October, while Jeddah will get added to the game in November.

While no specific date has been given it’s great to finally have news on when we can go racing at the new circuits.
